Characteristic conformational features of the Ant-Pro reverse turn ― a folded pseudo β-turn motif with a closed nine-membered-ring H-bonded network involving just two amino acid residues ― are described. The results were obtained from the investigation of ten crystal structures and their NMR conformations in the solution state.
